Similar to CW138
from the state of Amapá in Brazil.
Placed in Lineage 8 sub clade 4 which
comprises the "intermediate long-snouts"
with deeper bodies. It also includes Brochis
in sub-clade 1 which was synonymised with Corydoras
by Britto in 2003 but in time there will be a revision
which will resurrect Brochis (Cope, 1871)
to full genera again. Aquarium Care:
As this is one of the longer snouted species it will
be well suited to most community tanks. A well planted
tank with a soft substrate such as sand so they can
bury their snouts while searching out food. Diet:
Readily accepts a mixed and varied diet which includes
granular foods, tablet food, frozen bloodworm and
good quality flake. Remarks: This
species is quite rare in imports.
